Our Story …

We are really pleased to announce that we're taking part in another Shitbox Rally in Winter 2024! This year, all the teams are driving their shitboxes from Melbourne to Alice Springs, fingers crossed that Colin the Camry will get Team Talladega there!

Shitbox Rally is the largest community lead fundraiser for Cancer Council in Australia and is now in its 14th year. Part of the participation is that all teams have to raise a minimum of $5,000, however we would love to raise well above this amount. As you can see with the Winter 2024 rally target set at $2,000,000 plus.

These funds go to Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. The fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

Here's what I'm doing …

Shitbox Rally is the adventure of a lifetime challenging participants and their cars, worth no more than $1,500, on a 7 day drive across Australia to raise money for cancer research.

The rally is not a race – it’s a fun, colourful, unpredictable adventure with participants travelling at their own pace in smaller groups. Vehicles often break down but “we never leave anyone behind” and each night is spent camping beneath the stars and celebrating the day’s achievements. It all adds up to an incredible opportunity to see Australia’s vast and beautiful countryside and make lifelong friends, many brought together after experiencing cancer themselves or seeing cancer impact family and friends.

Since it’s inception the rally has been the largest fundraiser for the Cancer Council nationally.

<p>So after deciding we were going to do this we rescued Colin from the scrap heap. At a sprightly 340,000kms young, what could possibly be wrong with him..... Turns out.... a fair bit.. :-) So far we have replaced the front swing arms, brake pads and rotors, rocker cover gasket (and sump gasket after we cleaned out some of the magic sludge we found in the top end and then subsequently had to drain the sump and clean out the pick up....... 3 times.) Next projects will be the timing belt, power steering pump and suspension. Oh well, its all for a fantastic cause, wish us luck! Oh Yeah, and please donate to Team Talladega. Thanks Carina</p>

The Impact, Outcomes & Charity

Shitbox Rally is a dedicated fundraising event for cancer research with funds going to Cancer Council.

Cancer Council is one of the largest non-government funders of cancer research in Australia. We conduct and fund research studies across all cancers and all stages of the cancer journey.

Thanks to the community funds raised such as Shitbox Rally we can fund world-class research that reduces the impact of cancer for everyone.

$46 million over the past 15 years has been raised by Box Rallies to date, supporting ground-breaking projects such as:

  • A research study to develop a vaccine that protects against lymphoma cancers.
  • A research trial to standardise international guidelines on melanoma removal.
  • A research grant to revolutionise the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

These projects wouldn’t be possible without your support.
